There were requests being made for immediate suspension of posting privs for a bannee. Since there need to be some safeguards for due process and weeding out trolls, this poll will suggest that members that are the subject of a banning poll may have thier posting privilidges suspended after 10 Votes on the poll has been cast and 66% or greater have favored the banning. The suspension is temporary unless the outcome of the poll favors his/her reinstatement.

Re: POLL: Immediate Suspension on Pollees for bann

Very good issue! I say that's a given and I'm surprised we hadn't discussed this already.

Off with his head! I am sure the person in question will do everything in his power to go out with doing as much damage as possible.

Re: POLL: Immediate Suspension on Pollees for bann

Well this board is new. In the future we can react quickly. So far already 90% are in favor of his banning with 10 replies. He could have been suspended now if this had been polled earlier.

I'm voting no just because I think this is a tool that could be used against us by a pack of trolls.

Eric, I can close this poll and restate if you have an amendment that can make this more bullet proof.

Add a minimum time limit of a couple hrs as well. That way a pack of trolls can't request a banning poll and then jump it with 10 instant YES replies. Gives the rest of the group a while to see what's going on and respond the other way.

Re: POLL: Immediate Suspension on Pollees for bann

Do we need a new poll for a 2 hour minimum time maturity for this poll? I dont think anyone will object. We alreayd have almost 10 votes cast. Please everyone note that there is an amendment. If this changes your vote. Please let me know so I can lock this POLL and start a new one.

I agree. Set his 2 hr clk to Now - Time the banning poll was started. That means he's got about 30 minutes left before suspension.

No.
They should be able to defend themselves if they so chose.
If they do nothing except repeatedly post annoyences then yes.

well this puts things in the hands of the moderators. The reason for the 2 hour rule is so that your friends or "non-trolls" can vote you back into the safe zone. If they werent doing anything but repeatedly posting annoyances, they woudlnt be up for banning to begin with. Thats why only moderators can post banning polls.

Perhaps this can be left to the discretion of the mod. If the bannee (is there such a word?) is continuing to exhibit the type of behaviour that caused the members to want to ban him/her in the first place -then the posting privilegies could be revoked at the discretion of the mods. If the member wants to speak their piece and try to influence the outcome of the poll, then they should have the right to do so. I for one don't think it is right to put a gag on the bannee unless they are plain disruptive. I see this as the same as in a court of law; you have the right to defend yourself against your accuser, but if you don't play by the rules the judge have the right to gag you.

Okay, so the mods are both accusers and executors in this model, but they aren't judges -that's what the members are. Allowing mods to temporary gag disruptive behaviour seems resonable, assuming that you trust the mods. Now, you can always vote to remove a mod if you find that they aren't evenhanded and reasonable and apply the rules fairly and equally. To me, this seems like a good compromise. Perhaps you can offer another point of view or suggestion?

Re: POLL: Immediate Suspension on Pollees for bann

The vote for this poll is in. The overwhelming majority will support a suspension of posting privs after 10 votes have been cast with 66% favoring the banning and the banning poll has been running for 2 hours. This methodology will be used with all future banning polls. Thank you for voting.
